Henry James

Series of four lectures in which undertakes the analysis of five Jamesian narratives in relation to film versions that have resulted over the twentieth century. These stories are four novels (The Europeans [1878] Washington Square [1880], A Portrait of a Lady [1881] and The Bostonians [1884]) and a novella (The Turn of the Screw [1898]). In addition to deepening the understanding of the narrative of Henry James, this examination is aimed to highlight the vitality of his work against some voices that have come to announce the end of its presence in the canon of the novel in English.
